I was looking for the right name and feel in a Meta Search Engine for about two months before a friend noticed a posting for a Meta Search Engine on EBay. On my birthday I purchased Veoda; the rest is history.
Chesterfield, VA (PRWEB) January 24, 2007
On February 20, 2006, a unknown Meta-Search engine named Veoda was purchased for $6,000 on EBay.
The new owner of Veoda, Sean Krueger was quoted as saying, "I was looking for the right name and feel in a Meta Search Engine for about two months before a friend noticed a posting for a Meta Search Engine on EBay. On my birthday I purchased Veoda; the rest is history."
At the time of purchase Sean Krueger was a Regional Director of an International Hotel Corporation responsible for an annual budget of over $90,000,000 in charge of the entire East Coast of the United States hotel portfolio.
"I do have experience in launching dotcoms as I created a company called KeyHotelDeals, Inc. that answered the online hotel booking need in 2002, but I grew up in the hotel industry and decided to return, until now," said Sean Krueger.
In October of 2005, Sean was attending a hotel conference that centered around the future of online hotel marketing. Several large hotel executives stated that the need for online advertisement will triple every year. During the conference several speakers mentioned the cons of advertising with the large Search Engines (i.e. Click Fraud), but noted it was a small price to pay for overall exposure. By the end of the conference, Sean Krueger was piecing together the ultimate Search Engine experience that would answer the needs of both advertisers and visitors.
At the time of Purchase, Veoda.com was banned from Google and was receiving less than 20 visitors a day. Sean Krueger hired a well known California based web design and database company that specializes in outsourcing projects oversees to China, Russia, and India to give Veoda a complete overhaul. In fact, the only feature not touched was the actual Veoda Logo. In March of 2006, Veoda became Veoda LLC based in Chesterfield Virginia (USA) and the name Veoda plus the Veoda logo was Trademarked.
In August of 2006 Sean Krueger launched the new Veoda and resigned from the hotel industry. To check out the new the new design and visit the new Veoda mascot (Speedy), go to: http://www.veoda.com .
"It is amazing the amount of traffic we received the first week. Veoda went from a Google Ban to a Page rank of 3 in the first month of August. Veoda's influx of traffic caused the servers to crash in the first week of September. Now Veoda servers are outsourced to the largest and most reputable server hosting company in the country and visitors have yet to have a slow surf experience. Just last week we added two additional servers to the network to ensure fast download/upload times for our visitors."
What makes Veoda special? Veoda is the only Meta Search Engine that offers free chat, dating, and email services. The Veoda email has been a HUGE hit with our fans. Veoda mail offers 5GB of space with zero advertisements! In fact, Veoda mail users are able to upload any documents to the Veoda email system for free. In short, Veoda offers free virtual flash drives. Go to: Veoda Mail
"My success in the hotel industry comes from the ability to anticipate the needs of guests, employees, and owners/corporations. No one likes the idea of having a free web email account that has advertisements attached to the messages. With Veoda we offer more space without slapping an advertisement for body enhancements to your email that you send off to grandma. The Veoda Free dating site (Veoda Personals) is also popular as we do not charge our visitors one nickel for any of the services. With Veoda we are in the "People" business not the "dotcom" business where visitors are placed in a advertised space. Veoda makes money through our Flat rate advertising model while providing an enhanced user/guest experience:
Future enhancements for Veoda to be released in 2007 include: Enhanced features for Email users, A one of a kind Instant Messenger service, Veoda's own web browser plus tool bar, and Veoda's own Search Logic. That's right, in 2007 Veoda will release its own Search Engine!
In 2006 Veoda took on a prominent Richmond, VA investor. Today Veoda is being represented by Growthink, Inc. (http://www.growthink.com) to raise a large first round of Capital funding for Veoda. One thing is for sure, Veoda is here to stay.
